Our Warranty Policy
At Hybrid Motor Cells, we take great pride in the quality of our products and the satisfaction of our customers. While we expect you to experience years of trouble-free operation using our products, under normal conditions, we understand that there can be some deviations to the normal operation very rarely. In the case of such an unlikely event, please refer to our warranty policy below.
Hybrid Motor Cells warrants its products to be free from defects in material under normal use for the intended purpose of the product.
This warranty covers the hybrid battery only. The warranty period is limited from the original date of purchase until the expiration of the warranty term, as noted on the invoice / sales receipt.
The warranty is not prorated. However, the warranty is bounded to a defined time period, there is no limit on mileage as long as the warranty is valid.
The warranty can be transferred to a new owner within thirty (30) days of the vehicle being sold, as confirmed by the official ownership transfer of the vehicle. The new owner of the vehicle will need to submit a copy of the ownership transfer and few additional required details to us within the 30-day period.
Hybrid Motor Cells charges a service fee for any warranty transfers beyond the 30-days. However, it is up to Hybrid Motor Cells to decide, on its sole discretion and on a case-by-case basis, whether to permit a warranty transfer. In addition, warranty terms will neither be extended nor restarted.
The warranty will be void if there are any mis-handling or attempt to sell the battery to a third-party separately from the vehicle.
If the battery is found to be defective in material by Hybrid Motor Cells during the warranty period, we will issue a replacement based on the reported Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) that relate to an HV or IMA battery failure. This replacement service includes the default installation procedure provided by Hybrid Motor Cells.
Batteries shipped to customers or third-party installers and replaced under warranty are not eligible for free installation or subject to reimbursement for labour costs.
This warranty does not cover conditions that are not anticipated or those beyond the control of Hybrid Core. Such instances include premature failure of the battery due to engine and/or other systems malfunctions on a hybrid vehicle. For example, the loss of engine function can occur leaving the vehicle to run on battery power alone thereby weakening the battery to the point of failure.
This warranty excludes failure from the following instances:
- Products being held in storage for a period exceeding thirty (30) days, regardless of whether they are stored inside or outside the vehicle.
- Any damage caused after delivery of the battery to the customer, or damages caused by shipping, if the battery is accepted at delivery and damage is not documented with the carrier.
- Any tampering, removal, or damage to the warranty labels.
- Any modifications or bypass of vehicle systems that are not in line with the manufacturer’s specifications.
- Installation of the battery into any vehicle besides the one it is specified for.
- Poor vehicle maintenance or vehicle conditions that may cause premature failure of the battery.
- Any other environment condition such as excessive heat or flooding
Warranty Service Requests
In case of any product failure or deviation, contact our customer support team within five (5) days of the first knowledge of defect in order to be advised on further actions.
Hybrid Motor Cells requires the provision of trouble codes (OBDII) before issuing a Warranty Service Order. The report must contain the retrieved codes, the vehicle’s VIN, the date and name of the shop or business that retrieved the codes for it to be accepted.
All Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) must be reported. Failure to do so leads Hybrid Motor Cells at liberty to charge additional fees. Reported Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) will be verified by our technicians to ensure they match the reported codes. If they do not match, the in-shop diagnostics fee will be factored.
